  1. Has any one ever done a composite video mod on one of these before?
  2. I think this would be difficult to do, as the up switch is just up and GND, whereas the Atari 7800 2nd button is not a straightforward pin and GND. If someone can show me how to do this with a switch, I'd be glad to do it.
  3. I could also make these with a usb controller inside (a zero delay), but then it couldn’t be used with retro consoles & computers.
  4. Of course, it’s a public forum...
  5. I probably will, but need to catch up on my other orders first.
  6. No, I don't do the Etsy thing, but I can make these for people, BUT! I have a huge backlog of Vectrex joysticks I need to make before taking on any more work. I don't want to make people wait for ages. I only take money when the things are actually made, too. They are £60 GBP + postage at cost.
  7. I have just made this for a customer recently and thought you lot would like it? 2600 - Button 2 is wired to UP (for jumping that usually uses UP and diagonal up) - I'm thinking of making this switchable between UP and the 2nd Button for homebrew games that support it. 7800 - I can also wire these for the 7800 standard 2 button layout.

  9. I make controllers similar to this for 9 pin (Atari) consoles & computers and Vectrex
  10. Have you seen my private message to you?

      It’s a normal thing to do, just kidding with you

  11. I've only just found this! I'm going to give my poor old Super Pong this mod!
  12. 3D printed thingy ??? You mean the octagonal restrictor? It’s because the joysticks only ever come with a 4/8 way restrictive snd they are not as accurate as having the octagonal angles for your stick to ‘snap’ into when doing diagonals.
  13. I have just got the overlays for my new joysticks. They are going to be £70 + postage. I am located in the UK. Postage to the US, I'm guessing will be somewhere between £14 to £17? They are available in 3 different overlays and I can do them with the joystick on the left or right (for all y'all lefties out there!) The overlays have numbers on them, but won't in future batches, so I can use them on left and right variations and I can also change the buttons from 3,4 / 1,2 to 1,2 / 3,4. The joysticks are Sanwa copies (almost exactly the same) and the buttons are proper Sanwa OBSF 24.
  14. Whenever, dude. I am machining a batch tomorrow, hopefully build a bunch over the weekend...
  15. No. To use the vectrex analog stick (directions) as a button, it needs to be converted to digital via a small circuit (very simple 8 resistor job) I could wire a buttons controller to (joystick) left,right and buttons so it could be used for Minestorm though.
